As a homeowner and taxpayer in this area, I support of the plan and only wish it could happen sooner. Unlike the east end of the city, the West End has been largely forgotten without tangible improvements in schools, housing, shopping, transportation, and amenities. Those against the plan fail to recognize the current situation of the area or offer sound alternatives—keeping the status quo of poor emergency services, substandard retail and grocery options, poorly designed streets, and outdated housing will not improve the West End, increase the city’s tax base, or make the community a better place to live. I believe that the plan will greatly help to revitalize the West End and acknowledges the interests of residents, the building owners, and the city’s tax base. The perfect should not be the enemy of the good. I look forward to seeing a revitalized West End that enjoys the improved housing, shopping, schools and other amenities already in other parts of the city.
